Please Stop Putting Peanut Butter Cups In The Freezer

As I sit here demolishing this delicious peanut butter cup, I came to the realization that there are actual living human beings who spend their hard-earned money on peanut butter cups just to bring them home and put them in the freezer. If you’re one of those people, then stay right there, the cops are on their way. What the hell is wrong with y’all? I’ll give a pass to people who put them in the fridge but let me be the first to tell you that you’re making a poor decision. Peanut butter cups should be eaten room temperature, simple as that. Let’s not turn something that’s so simple into complicated.

My question to you Frozen-Peanut-Butter-Cup-Eating-People is, do you keep jars of peanut butter in the freezer? Well of course you don’t. No one does. So, what exactly would make you want to put your peanut butter cups in the freezer when half of it consists of peanut butter? You’re creating a thick and unnatural texture that makes it hard to consume. You’re also taking away flavor by putting peanut butter in a state that it was not created to be in. Now, for the chocolate part of the peanut butter cup. Chocolate is undoubtedly better when its smooth, rich and easier to bite down on. You get none of that by throwing it in the freezer. Instead you jeopardize chipping a tooth with every bite you take. All together you’re creating a tasteless rock hard candy bar.

Peanut butter cups are sold on warm shelves in grocery and convenient stores because its where they belong and it’s how they should be consumed. There is simply no benefit to freezing your peanut butter cups. You’re taking something delicious and making it not delicious. I hope this serves as a step in the right direction for frozen peanut butter consumers. Take my advice and eat them room temperature. Your life will drastically improve.
